5. Reflect the light
If you do not want to use fill flash or if that is not enough to sufficiently light up your subjects, you might need a reflector to do the same thing.
6. Use a filter
There are two filters that could help you tame direct sunlight. One is the neutral density filter, which reduces the amount of light getting into your camera, and the other is the polarizing filter, which does the same thing. A polarizing filter can also reduce reflections and help you have more control over the colors in your photograph.
